Alison Can Read Feature & Follow
Hey All! Welcome to My Blog!
Feel free to look around!

I am happy to be a part of this Feature Follow!

I offer many ways to follow and connect,

All of these plus Linky and Instagram & Pinterest

My name is Shayna and I am writing my first YA Paranormal Book, True Fate.

I just started blogging but I have been doing read to review for a while now. I am a truly addicted reader.
I love YA, Paranormal, Dystopian, NA, you name it I read it.
I'm a fiction reader 100%!

Keep Reading to see how you can join the Feature Follow Blog Hop!
And of Course the FEATURE!
Don't forget to sign up for the hop at the bottom!

                                                What is Feature Follow You Ask?
Increase Blog Followers

The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee’s View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it’ll allow us to show off more new blogs!

How does this work?

The goal is to increase blog followers and make friends. First you leave your name here on this post, (using the linky tools — keep scrolling!) then you create a post on your own blog that links back to this post (easiest way is to just grab the code under the #FF picture and put it in your post) and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them “hi” in their comments (on the post that has the #FF image). You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you! What sets this Hop apart from others, is our Feature. Each week we will showcase a Featured Blogger, from all different genres and areas. Who is our Feature today? Find out below. Just remember it is required, if you participate, to follow our Features and you must follow the hosts (Parajunkee & Alison Can Read) as a courtesy. How do you follow someone? Well, if you have a preference, state it in your #FF post. A lot of blogs are transitioning to WordPress in which they do not have the luxury of GFC, so an RSS subscription is appreciated or if you choose an email subscription. If you don’t have GFC please state in your post how you would like to be followed. All features are chosen randomly to be the feature. They are not chosen by content or name.
 This Weeks Question...
What Magazine's do you like?
TBH it's been awhile since I have physically picked up a magazine.
Not since getting my Nook and Kindle apps on my phone.
My phone is my everything hub!
But the subscriptions I had before that I have shown below.
PEOPLE Magazine: My fave on clearing up the rumors that circulate. There's a lot of things from all sides of the spectrum inside of it. I have always liked the make up and hair sections. If I want to see what so and so's famous little one looks like that is the mag for it!
VANITY FAIR: What can I say, Fashion, fashion, fashion. I have always loved fashion. Even though my droll black clad closet would tell you otherwise. I love the extravagance and glam of this magazine. I get great make up tips from this one as well as seeing my fave stars all glammed up!
SHOJO BEAT: There are those who would say my Shojo Beat is not a magazine. But nestled between the Manga I love is ads and articles about anime and toki doki style. There are ads for the Japanese, harajuku style that I adore as well. Earning it a spot here!
GUNS & AMMO: Oh yes I am a gun girl. I love to see what's new and what guns aren't performing like they thought they would. Along with the ammo and new types of body armor and stuff like that. I'm weird, I know. :)
FOOD NETWORK: Loads of great cooking ideas can be found in these pages. Tips and tricks to make a bad cook, like me, seem like an okay cook! Luckily my husband is an amazing cook and I don't really have to go in the kitchen much. I might be banned from it actually but that's a long story!
GAMEINFORMER: I will admit I did not pour over this magazine and look at it a million times like my sons do. But I do love some xbox games and like to stay current with what's new and what not to spend a mini fortune on! Plus I like the ComicCon insight!
VOGUE:  Again, fashion, fashion! Love it! Great articles in there too!
CAR AND DRIVER: I love cars, all things cars, new, old and everything in between! Always have from when I was a teen obsessed with Lowrider Magazine. I like to think I have graduated LOL!
ROLLING STONE: I am a musician, I play bass and I sing harmony to my husbands lead for the past 17yrs. I love music it's a part of who I am and what makes me happy. I love finding the new and unusual, the breakthrough. As well as what's up with the has beens.
Other than those there are loads of tattoo magazines that I really like. Tattooing is my most recent job I have had. A tattoo artist is a very fun job, your art immortalized on a living canvas. I don't do it as much as I used to with writing but I love when I get the chance to do it again.
Being an artist in general I really appreciate some of the talent that is out there and love to see it in those mags.
Anyways that is it for now! Thanks so much for stopping by and please leave your FF and I will go check it out! Say hi, share your fave mags if you aren't a part of the hop in the comments!
Cheers! Have a great day y'all! Thanks for stopping by!

  13. It seems like most people aren't reading many magazines anymore, which is kind of sad. There are so many different things vying for our attention these days.
